My husband and I had a fabulous time touring with Vicki & Kevin. We were greeted at our hotel promptly and given our helmets complete with mics. What a fun way to see the city! I search for unique things to do- we'd certainly never ridden in motorcycle sidecars! The tour lasted over 2 1/2 hours maybe 3! Both were... More

This was the highlight of our first trip to Nova Scotia! Can't think of a better way to see Halifax. Our tour guide & driver Vicki was delightfully informative & brought the city's history to life for us. We especially appreciated their flexibility when the weather caused us to reschedule. Would do this again in a heartbeat!

I'm serious. Touring with Vickie and Kevin in their sidecars is an experience of a lifetime. They are gracious, thoughtful hosts who provide a safe and thrilling ride while sharing informative facts and amusing stories about the area. We took their Peggy's Cove tour which included several great stops with the opportunity to meet local artists, sample local cuisine, take... More

I took this tour primarily for the opportunity to ride in the sidecar of a modern remakke of an old style Russian military motorcycle. The ride was comfortable allow full views in all directions. Waves and smiles the whole time from people we passed. Although I came to see the bike, my tour guide Victoria stole the show. The route... More

We had a wonderful tour of Halifax with Bluenose Sidecar! Kevin and Vicki were the best guides, and could not have been nicer. Both the cycles and the sidecars were so fun to ride on, and the tour was very informative. My teenage daughters who normally hate normal city tours, absolutely LOVED this. Thank you Kevin and Vicki!

I was picked up by Vicki at my hotel and I was immediately impressed by how knowledgeable a rider she is and knows a lot about safety and the Halifax area. I was hesitant as I have never been on a motorcycle before much less a sidecar. The sidecar is secure and fun to ride in even for a wuss... More

We had the opportunity to tour with Bluenose back in July when we visited Halifax and Vicky and Kevin were the ultimate hosts. The weather was overcast and drizzly, but we were snug in our sidecars and were able to enjoy the trip. Lots of beautiful scenery and great stops at fun places like the hammock place and the Peggy's... More

What an amazing day we had cruising around the Halifax area with Bluenose Sidecar tours. Four college friends from 4 different states get together once a year . This year we enjoyed a 7 day New England cruise on Royal Caribbean. The shore excursions offered through the ship didn't capture our interest so we each researched options in different ports....

From the very moment Vicki picked us up from the dock, (and guaranteed to return us before the ship sailed!) we noticed her very friendly personality and by the end of the day we were all having cuddles. The tour itself was certainly an adventure and the knowledge that Vicki had of the history of this area added to the... More

We were looking forward to the experience of riding in a sidecar but this was so much more. The owners are the drives and tour guides and they are just downright great people. What I especially liked about this tour was their intimate knowledge of the people and history of the area. There were several stops and at each stop... More
